If you are a regular full-time employee with an appointment lasting nine months or more, your dependent children are eligible to apply to participate in the Tuition Exchange Program as long as you will have completed at least 16 months of service prior to the start of the fall semester in which they will enter their freshman year of college. Only one dependent per family may participate in the program at a time. Employees whose percentage time worked decreases below the eligibility requirements for the Tuition Exchange Program will no longer be able to participate in the plan.
Your eligible dependent children are those whom you claim as exemptions on your federal income tax return during the calendar years in which they are enrolled in undergraduate degree programs through the Tuition Exchange Program. Only your unmarried dependent children or stepchildren who are under age 27 and who are entering their freshman year of college qualify for this program.
Your dependent children are not eligible for additional benefits as a dependent child of another employee eligible for Tuition Exchange benefits.
